To Liberate your Wind Phone You will need the following:
Your phone's IMEI number: It is your phone's identity, like a serial number or a fingerprint even. Most phones have a 15-digit number written in fine print on the back of the device. You can also find it by dialing *#06# into your phone's dialer app, or go to the settings and then the About Phone section.
Check if the phone is compatible with the new network. Wind uses a frequency that is not very common in North America so you should ask your new carrier if the phone you want to unlock is compatible with their network. A network unlock phone will still not get a signal if the hardware is not compatible.
A SIM card from a different carrier other than Wind: A SIM card is how your device connects with your wireless provider. It is also worth noting that Rogers is the same network carrier as Fido, Bell is the same as Virgin Mobile, and Wind is the same carrier as Freedom Mobile. If you change out one SIM card for another that uses the same network then usually you will not get the automatic unlock code prompt. Normally you can switch to these other carriers without the need to unlock your phone.
What is Unlocking?
Cellular phones are expensive technology. To help make them more affordable to new customers carriers like Bell, Rogers and Wind would commonly offset the cost by locking a phone to their network. Instead of paying $600 for a new phone, new customers could pay $0 down in exchange for agreeing to a 3-year contract which had the price of the phone built into the monthly payments. The phone was then 'locked' to the network so even if you ended the contract, the phone would not work with competing services; forcing you to buy a new phone.
Unlocking a wireless device lets your device work on any network that has compatible technology.
